Saint George’s Chapel

Saint George’s Chapel is located in the south-western part of the town in Kazimierz Jagiellończyk Street. It was built around 1286 as a wooden structure. In the Middle Ages there was a church with a shelter for the pilgrims and homeless people in the place of the present chapel. The present Saint George’s Chapel was built of brick in the Gothic style around 1340. From that time on it serves as a cemetery chapel while in the 19th century it was used as a storehouse.
